We’re incredibly fortunate to have secured services of the wonderful Fenella Humphreys (Fenella Humphreys – about), who will play Tchaikovsky’s violin concerto with us in an afternoon workshop. It’s always a pleasure to accompany brilliant soloists and this concerto has great parts for the whole orchestra.
